We stayed at the Mentone for 3 nights at September 2012. We had two rooms, the other at the top floor and the other on the first floor. Both rooms had a lovely view to the little park/tennis courts in front of the hotel. Also, both rooms were very clean and also rather spacious for London accomodation. The bathrooms were rather small, but adequate.
Our room at the top floor had a slightly low ceiling, and the strairs up were rather narrow and steep, so if you have mobility issues, ask for a lower floor room. We had specifically asked for a quiet room on the top floor, and didn't mind the stairs at all. The room was quiet as promised.
The breakfast was just brilliant, there were all sorts of cereals, toast, joghurt, fruits, croissants and a full english available. The staff serving the breakfast was also friendly and the orders were delivered at a fast pace.
The location of Mentone Hotel is brilliant. The street is quiet but well located near 3 tube stations. There is a (rather expensive) supermarket just around the corner, and also a Tesco express very near, just across the street from the Russell Square tube. The hotel is in walking distance of Regents Park, British Museum and all the other Bloomsbury attractions. Overall a great stay!
